Re: [GNC] gnucash-user Digest, Vol 192, Issue 23

Subject: Re: [GNC] Problems Accessing GnuCash Files on my D:\

Your symptoms sound different, but I fought a similar situation where I
share a NTFS data drive between windows and LinuxMint 18.3.
It seems that windows does not release any disk it uses because it helps
windows boot faster. I first proved this by holding the shift key while
shutting down windows. This supposedly causes windows to fully shut down
and release the disk. I was then able to access my data drive from Linux. I
am new to linux and struggle with the learning curve, but my ultimate cure
(so far) was to install an Linux NTFS driver via my grub boot file.

Dont know if this will help, but it is at least a redirection - sound like
you have tried most other options.
